Whether it was an acquaintance from time gone by, or a co-worker from not too long ago that you somehow lost touch with; perhaps a relative that you’ve not seen in many years back; maybe even a child who had moved away and for some reason the communication lines seem to have vanished. Whatever the situation is . . . the pain from that can run quite deep. It can grab our heartstrings and tug so hard we feel like we are going to burst wide open – our lungs even feel like they can hardly grasp a breath. Yes, ‘feelings’ are . . . but they are not what we are to live by. We have free will. We can choose to wallow in those feelings, allowing them to drag us down into the mire of despair or we can choose to focus on what we DO have –
A LOVING SAVIOR Who is, even now, waiting to burst right through the storm clouds of our ‘feelings’ and shine the Light of His Love and acceptance into our hearts.
He will NEVER, EVER, EVER leave us or forsake us . . . never forget us . . . always love us . . . is always there to hear our cry, share in our laughter, embrace us through the lonely and rough spots. We are His ‘beloved’ – He is our Bridegroom. He loves us with an everlasting love that casts out all fear, doubt, worry, anxiety, loneliness, sorrow, __________ (fill in the blank).
Truth is . . . people WILL let you down.
Truth is . . . God won’t – He can’t, it’s against Who He IS!!!
Truth is . . . even in a crowd, we can feel lost, lonely and/or forgotten . . . if we’re looking toward the ‘crowd’ to satisfy our need(s)
Truth is . . . ONLY God can truly fill each and every need we have.
Truth is . . . He is there, waiting for you . . . why do you delay in reaching out to Him?
